The activity explains how to make a paper doll that bends, so it can make the sign of the cross. A wonderful Khouria recently asked me if I could send the worksheet, and I thought what a great idea why didn’t I do this before 🙂 … so here’s the worksheet you can use to make the paper doll. You will also need scissors, coloring supplies (color pencils, markers, crayons), mini brads (I found these at Michaels), push pin or hole punch depending on the brads, and glue. The PDF is in the link below the image.
Line the bottom of round 9 inch cake pan with wax paper and butter
Separate the eggs. In a large mixing bowl beat the egg yolks, butter, sugar, vanilla and orange rind together at medium speed until creamy. Add milk. Stir baking soda into orange juice and slowly add that to the large mixing bowl. (At this point don’t worry if it separates, it’ll still come out) Then add the flour and baking powder into the bowl lowering your mixer speed to avoid a huge mess, then allow to combine at medium speed.
In a medium bowl whisk the egg white to form “stiff peaks”. Mix in 1/2 the egg whites until combined, then gently fold in the second 1/2 eggs white to lighten up the batter a bit.
Pour your folded batter in your prepared pan. Take a thoroughly washed coin, wrap it in foil and slip it into the batter (2″ away from edge works well). Bake in the oven for 30min.
After it is finished baking let it cool in the pan on a cooling rack for 15 min and then remove from pan and allow to cool completely. After it is cooled dust with powdered sugar.
